    I wish I could but my German is limited. I bet there are a couple on the site that would. Have you tried any of the translators on line?

    Here is your first translation of the document..
    You´ll receive the same by PM :D

    ...............................

    Dear Peter

    About the loss of the Lancaster III LM546CF-0 of 625. Sqdn i can deliver only small information because the grounding area is 200 kilometers away from my residence so i´m unable to take further researches.
    I´ll try on the basis of my documents to give you some Informations about the crash.
    -----------

    Following the details of plane and crew... I think no translation needed...

    -----------

    In the book "Airwar over Stuttgart 1939-1945" you will find on page 130 a report in wich the examination of a crewmember of the Lancaster II, LM546CF-0 of 625 Sqdn is recorded.


    About the footnote in the book these are informations of eyewitnesses.

    If you are interested in this documentation you should take contact to the record office of the town Stuttgart identifying yourself as R.A.F. Researcher. You as a british people have better chances to receive a answer than me as a german.

    Would you please give me feedback if you are successfull?

    The crash site must be a wooded area near the town Esslingen close to the Highway (Autobahn A 10) at Plochingen.

    Please tell me about your researches about the Lanc. LM546 if i can help you along.

    Best regards
    in co-operation

    Dear Peter,

    unfortunaly I can give you only few information about loss of Lancaster III, IM 546CF-O from 625th Sqdn, because the crash site is 200 km away from my home town so I can´t do my research there.
    I´ll try, with the help of my written stuf,to give you some information about the crash.

    R.A.F. bomber command Losses of R.A.F.-Air Raid on July 28th/29th, 1944
    Target: Stuttgart
    494 Lancasters and 2 Mosquitos from 1st,3rd,5th and 8th Group.
    Losses: Lancaster II, LM546CF-O from 625th Sqdn
    Crew members:
    (no need to translate)
    ..
    ..
    ..
    ..

    In the book with the German name: Stuttgart im Luftkrieg 1939-1945 (Stuttgart in the air war) you can find on the page Nr. 130 an account that was on my opinion collected and documented by one of the crewmembers of Lancaster III, LM546CF-O.

    According to the side note in this book this account was based on some


    Page Nr.2

    drawings and eye witnesses statements.

    Should you be interested in these documents, please get in touch with Archiv der Stadt Stuttgart. You, as English, have a better chance to get the answer than me, German.

    Please let me know if you were succesfull.

    The crash site should be in the woods area close to the town Esslingen, close to the A10 higway by Plochingen?

    Let me know please about you reasearch for Lancaster LM546, if I can help you more?

    Best regards

    Peter

    Pete,

    as for Uffz. Martin Uhlmann- have you been in touch with Theo Boiten?
    No additional info?
    I´ve found 10 Martin Uhlmanns in the German phone book. Does Theo know from which town came your Uhlmann? Hard to say if is he still living but you never know...

    I have sent a message to Theo i think to the right address.
    Sadly i feel my efforts are in vain , to solve this mystery. It does not help sometimes he is listed as AllTMANN.

    Thanks
    Pete
